Viral or bacterial?: Viral pneumonia will not respond to antibiotics so the symptoms will last much longer. Bacterial pneumonia should start responding to appropriate antibiotic treatment within 4 days or so. Often times, medications such as steroids and inhalers are used to hasten recovery.

My 14 mnths since born, sweats hvily when asleep or eating. Rcntly I ntced her short breath and constnt cough. Xray ok. Antibiotic didn't help. Why?

See below: Has anyone checked for CF or looked into a heart issue? If not, I would recommend both. Other issues can also cause a persistent cough that are not infectious like vascular rings, sling around the trachea or cardiac malformations. X rays will not often pick these issues up. See you pediatrician again and ask these questions.

Is it good to sweat easily?

Hard to say: Perspiration is a good thing; it's what we use to keep our body temperature normal in situations (excessive heat or exercise) where it could get too high. But, "easy sweating" is like "easy bruising"; there is no clear definition for this. Persons in poorer physical condition may perspire more with less activity than more fit individuals; in that case I wouldn't call it "good".

This happens and people who have a history of a spinal cord injury.

Why isn't my sweat salty? Is that bad?

It depends.: Not everyone has sweat that tastes salty; how "salty" sweat is depends on your hydration status, how much you're sweating, and how quickly it's evaporating. Chances are your sweat is fine, so long as you don't have any symptoms to suggest other serious illness.

Can u have a reaction to your own sweat?

Not really: Your body will be tolerant to its own sweat. However sweat is also a bit of a culture medium and in the wrong circumstances may collect bacteria or toxins that can cause a reaction. If you think this is a problem then take a shower quickly after anything which makes you sweat.

I sweat uncontrollably and it's embarrassing, is there something that causes this and what can I do?

Hyperhidrosis: When excessive sweating occurs unpredictably without triggers such as high temperatures, vigorous exercise or nervous situations, it is called hyperhidrosis. It’s due to overactive sweat glands. It may be hereditary, but sometimes due to other problems like hyperthyroidism, menopause or anxiety. Please see a doctor to determine what's appropriate for you (drysol, anticholinergic meds, botox, etc).
